Below is a sampling of our pots. They reflect the diverse and experimental nature of our work.
Each pot has a brief description, the name of the potter, then a sentence or two about why or how
the pot was made (why it was fun to do). Oh, and we do the requisite, traditional coffee mugs,
bowls, plates, etc. too.
Small Square(ish) Plate (Jennifer)
Required a couple of different techniques: created with a form instead of
thrown, played around with slip and brushed glazing.
Lidded form and a favorite glaze combination. Getting lids to fit
well is always a challenge.
Square(ish) Mug (Jennifer)
Thrown then altered. At home, these mugs are used frequently for
adult beverages. They feel good in the hand, and is just a bit different and fun.
Because, after all, who doesn't like a reptile in their bowl.
Dove-tailed Mug (Jennifer)
Typical thrown mug, but altered the form in an unusual way.
Spirit Pot (Jane)
An interesting technique, first using terra sigillata surface treatment, followed
by a raku style firing with horse hair (mane or tail) and feathers applied to the pot
while hot (1800 F). What fun!
Herb Markers (Jennifer)
Slab built, no glaze but stained so that the lettering is
easy to read. These are markers BIG so you can actually SEE them in your garden.
Despite the shape, they are not effective in killing vampires.
Hand-built cat statues. No litter box required.
Toad Hut (Jennifer)
Thrown bowl, textured, and (hey look) there's a toad. Stained, not glazed. Supposedly, these little
huts will provide a nice home for toads in your garden. Cute, but sadly, no toads have moved into mine.
Sushi Plates (Jane)
Slab built sushi plates, with textured surface treatment.
Bear In Progress (Jane)
An architectural piece in progress. Wishing to do more!
Cat Food Bowl (Jennifer)
Created for the Amazing Reggie, it used stamping and wax resist
to make the name and nautilus stand out. Now in daily use by sister's cat.
Poetry Tree (Jane)
A sign pointing to a tree on which poems are hung for the
enjoyment of all who may come across it. What else could it possibly be?
Ice Cream Bowl (Jennifer)
Created using layers of slip and colored stains, underglaze, and
carving. These bowls have become popular gifts for friends.
